I'm trying to connect my Compaq 8510w to my HP LCD television. Once I connected a hdmi cable, I was able to use the Catalyst Controler to define my TV as a second output screen. Videos look great, but I have not been able to get any sound to go over the hdmi cable and come out through the TV.
Any suggestions on what I could try to get both video and sound to work through the TV would be greatly appreciated.

Have this problem intermittently as well. Fix ( for Vista ) is to go to Control Panel > Sound and make sure HDMI is set as default device with a green tick. When plugging in HDMI cable it should do this automatically but I have found it is flakey.
Hope this helps.

I have connected my TV HDMI output to the HDMI jack on my HP PAvilion DV-7 1105tx to set up to watch TV with a HDMI connecting cable. However nothing is happening.
I have a NVIDIA Geforce 9600GT video card installed.
I go into control panel then sound and I note that there is an option in Playback and recording for NVIDIA HDMI output Audio . In both cases it says not working unplugged. And the configure and set default buttons are greyed out.
How do I fix this?

Don't know if you ever got your problem figured out, but I had that problem with my laptop. As I was browsing this board I accidentally solved the problem. My computer froze so I shut it off (with the power button instead of the proper shut down). I did not turn off my TV though. When I restarted the computer the sound was again going through the TV. So in short, try leaving your TV on while you restart your computer and see if that fixes the sound. Sorry it took so long to get to the point. LOL! Hope that helps a bit.

I have an Insignia 40" LCD 720P TV and I am trying to connect my HP laptop up to it with an HDMI cable. I get video but no sound. I am running Windows 7 OS. I have tried to change my playback settings to an HDMI option, but there is no HDMI option to select. Yes, there is an HDMI plug. Any help would greatly relieve a lot of frustration.

I am in the same boat. I don't have an HDMI output as an option but I do have the Realtek digital output. When I click that as the default, no sound associated with the video comes out but when I hit test, I do get the test signal to come through my receiver. I am a bit frustrated any help out there?
